Lions boost running game by adding Bell an Duckett.
    #6667516 - 03/14/07 04:06 AM (14 years, 2 months ago)

Kevin Jones, Tatum Bell an T.J Duckett. This combination of running styles should form into a formidable running game for Detroit.  Tatum Bell an elusive, speedy runner, mixed in with Ducketts power running should keep opposing defenses in trouble. These new additions also provide much needed depth at RB, considering how Jones's durability continues to be an issue each season. With a newly established passing game, and a revamped running attack, the lions offense looks like it has potential now to dominate defenses. If Kitna can cut back on his interceptions and continue to rack up the yards throwing to pro bowl targets Williams an Furrey, Lions Fans, there could be hope.

  In the upcoming draft the lions should select that offensive tackle out of wisconsin. He has freakish type athletic skills at his height and size. He would definitely help out starters Backus, Raiola an woody. Then the lions should focus mainly on defense during the rest of the rounds. They need to gain some quality players in there secondary which especially needs help after the loss of Dre Bly. If quality players are available at CB during the 2nd and 3rd rounds, Millen an the Lions need to address this gaping whole. Season after season the lions continue to suck at stopping the pass and nows the time for Millen to help fix this problem through the draft. :mushroom2:

Don't worry, they'll draft a WR.

I think you are talking about Joe Thomas. He would be a great pickup for any team that has o-line problems. They say he could be a franchise type player. However I agree with jewunit they will probably get a wide receiver.

Who has zero durability, goes down way too easy and has a hard time finding the correct hole to run through.

Being a Broncos fan, I watched this douche play and I can't tell you how happy I was when I heard he was traded.

TJ Duckett is pretty much a bust too.

For what was expected of him....

Yeah, This seems like the kind of pick-up the Lions would make...

Yea, ive never really seen Tatum play but i remember when he was coming out of the draft, he ran the 40 in something like a 4:25. And correct me if im wrong but didnt Tatum rush for 1200 yards last year?If true,even with denvers O-line that is still good. Even if he isnt that durable its not going to matter as much because the lions now have 2 other backs that can carry the load. As for Duckett, i have seen him play and he will be good in goal line situations and in short yardage.

If Millen drafts another wide reciever he should be fired. We already have a good corp of recievers and we dont need anymore.

They're not good.
But you do have like 20 first round WRs.

If we had a halfway decnet QB, Roy Williams would be a monster.

Definitely. If the lions had a great quarterback there offense would easily be in the top five in the league. Williams would blow away all other recievers stats for sure with his talent and Mike Furrey (who had 1000 yards and 98 receptions last year and should of been in the pro bowl) would finally get some respect at his position. A great QB would make the lions a force, finally.

233 rushes for 1025 yards. And what do you mean with Denver's O-line?

I think he means regardless of the fact that anyone can be an amazing rusher behind Denver's O-Line, Bell's stats were still impressive.

I would disagree, I think it means nothing. Portis was arguably the best back they had, and he isn't even THAT good anymore. Don't get me wrong, he's good, but there are better, but when he was with Denver he was a top tier back.

I've said it before and I'll say it again - Mike Shanahan could turn yer grandma into a 1,000 yard back.

And I'll agree with you, once again.
